Ex-Bochum coach Oenning: Klopp wrong on Man City midfielder Gundogan

Former VfL Bochum coach Michael Oenning has recalled working with Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

And he says he isn't surprised by the goalscoring success Gundogan has enjoyed this season.

Oenning told Goal: "In my opinion, Ilkay has always been a number 10, a player who should be in and around the box and score goals.

"The way he plays in Manchester City now."

Oenning also says he'd argue with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp when he played Gundogan at Borussia Dortmund in a deeper role.

He added: "Klopp and I disagreed about Gündogan's best position. We often argued about it and I thought it was wrong of Klopp to play him as a defensive midfielder."
